The SNART art Manifesto (Declaration)

SNART is an acronym for Self Narrative ART.

SNART is a field of Art making that has to do with the reflection of narration through the environment; a narration that has to do with self expression.

Arguably, self expression (the expression of ones´ narrative self) is futile without a receiver. A symbiotic unity between SNART and audience.

SNART handles the narrative – as to distinguish from the emotional, the objective, the formative; the narration is self-expressional. I AM materializes through a Self Narrative ART or SNART.

The reflection is mirrored in language and hence thought. SNART is a reflection of TRANS. Trans is of significant meaning picturing the becoming one from another; a move to a higher state:

The number e is transcendental; the numerical value of e is: 2.718281828459045235360287471352662497757… With the possible exception of π, e is the most important constant in mathematics since it appears in myriad mathematical contexts involving limits and derivatives. Any number that has a rapidly converging sequence of rational approximations must be transcendental.

  5. in writing; In both academic writing and professional writing, the goal is to convey information clearly and concisely; if not to convert the reader to your way of thinking. Transitions achieve these goals by establishing logical connections between sentences, paragraphs, and sections. Transitions tell readers what to do with the information presented to them. Whether single words, quick phrases, or full sentences, they function as signs that tell readers how to think about, organize, and react to old and new ideas as they read through what has been written.

Transitions signal relationships between ideas—relationships such as: “Another example coming up—stay alert!” or “Here’s an exception to my previous statement” or “Although this idea appears to be true, here’s the real story.” Basically, transitions provide the reader with directions for how to piece together your ideas into a logically coherent argument. Transitions are not just verbal decorations that embellish your paper by making it sound or read better. They are words with particular meanings that tell the reader to think and react in a particular way to your ideas. In providing the reader with these important cues, transitions help readers understand the logic of how your ideas fit together.
